The Seattle Seahawks have already defeated one likely Hall of Fame quarterback - Peyton Manning - during Super Bowl XLVIII.
Can they do it again to another likely candidate - New England quarterback Tom Brady - headed to Canton, Ohio?
I’d like to think so.
Seattle’s defense has proved time and again it can hold off high-powered offensive teams. The most points the Seahawks have given up this season is 30 twice to San Diego and Dallas, which both resulted in losses. Seattle ranks first in total defense and allowed less than 4,300 total yards and 15.9 points per game in the regular season.
Prior to the Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle wasn’t pegged as the favorite. But the Seahawks changed people’s mind quickly as they rolled to a 43-8 victory against the Denver Broncos for the franchise’s first Super Bowl title.
The last time New England and Seattle played against each other during the regular season was in 2012. The Seahawks pulled off a narrow 24-23 victory in Russell Wilson’s rookie season. In the game, Wilson threw for 293 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Seattle would also be the first back-to-back Super Bowl champions since New England did it during the 2003-04 seasons.
Regardless of the final outcome, the Seahawks have a built a team for continual success. Don’t be surprised if Seattle makes multiple Super Bowl appearances in the near future.
Plus with all the scrutiny with Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch during the week, what will he say if the team wins back-to-back Super Bowls? If he says anything at all.
Final score: I don’t think it will be as much of a blow out as last year, but Seahawks 28, New England 24.
